The predictability of this romantic comedy co-starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in no way detracts from its humorous charm.

Runs a half-hour too long, and it drags through its multiple endings. Runaway Bride has plenty of delights, just a few too many.

A satisfying romantic comedy that reveals that we can't open our hearts to love until we stop cheating on our true selves.

Gere and an almost ethereally radiant Roberts have never been better than in this sometimes herky-jerky breeze, which keeps improving as it goes.

When Gere and Roberts were first paired up nine years ago in 'Pretty Woman,' the result delighted a whole lot of people, and 'Bride' proves lightning can strike twice.

The well-matched stars pick up where they left off on that Hollywood fire escape nine years ago.

Gere and Roberts evidence enough genuine chemistry on the screen to fill a dozen run-of-the-mill romances.

The chemistry between these two stars is undeniable, something that cannot be taught in acting classes.
